Well I need to move a tank into my house with the weather we got for tomorrow moving it with bare hand will be a problem, so does anyone have or know where I could find (Vacuum Suction Cups With ABS Handle) to buy or rent.:biggrin:

Eli, depend on the size of your tank you might need to get some pneumatic ones with a heavy duty handle to pick up anything larger than a 180 gallon. Those ones from princess auto are only rated for a very low load.

The ones I got they are rated to carry as one worker says about 200lbs of weight.
They are like 3 cups to every handle made with hard plastic.
Well I am off to pickup, wish me luck and I will let you all know how it goes:biggrin:

If you are a member of the Aquarium Club of Edmonton, they have a set of 4 that are lent to members. We just moved a heavy 150 with them and they worked like a charm.

I asked him to check the e-mail time and if you were first it was yours, I meet him before when I bought a bunch of his fish.
